Red (blood) Spot In Eye?

So I wake this morning to find a red spotting in my eye. It looks like blood but I blinked numerous amount of times and it didn't not going away. I fear it's internal bleeding? I don't know how it happened and I didn't feel any pain or irritation until few hours after discovering it, my eye just now feels sore. Anyone know wtf that spot is? Thanks.

*Note: Soonest I can get to an optometrist isn't until Monday, sadly.

I didn't check your pictures as the links were not active for me.  This sounds like a harmless subconjunctival hemorrhage.  People wake up with them all the time.  There is no reason for you to be examined unless you want the reassurance.
